WandaVision may be over but Marvel’s first Disney Plus streaming series has certainly left a mark on fans (at least we have The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to tide us over and then Loki in June). With people still raving about the series, fan content is getting a fair amount of attention and for good reason. With WandaVision’s surreal and supernatural nature, the associated fan content is clearly inspired by the creative sides of the show as a lot of it is bizarrely awesome. Let’s take a look at some of the fan animations that have spawned from WandaVision.
“A WandaVision Thingy”
A short animation that lasts just over a minute, this video is a great example of a simple idea done excellently. YouTube channel imaJunation creates a simple animation showcasing all of the different looks that Wanda and The Vision have over the course of the show. As each episode represents a different decade of television, there are a lot of costume changes throughout WandaVision. imaJunation uses the same stock character model for Wanda and Vision and changes them up accordingly for each of their outfits. They also change the background and add colour for when the show transitions to that technicoloured 70’s style. I like the creepy addition of the WandaVision theme slowed down in the background as well as the little changes here and there that represent the moments when the show snaps back to reality, such as Wanda’s smiling face becoming angry to resemble the moment she leaves the Hex in the series to warn the SWORD agents not to try and ruin her perfect home. I also like that disturbing little inclusion of Vision with the Mind Stone ripped from his head that Wanda sees in episode three. I’m disturbed like that apparently.
This one is great because it came about long before the show actually started airing and yet it is spookily accurate. We see the 1950’s sitcom set up as Wanda opens the door to the Vision to applause from the studio audience, only to see Vision with the Mind Stone yanked from his head as he warns Wanda that she has to let him go. She simply declines and tells him to come into the house, which he agrees to. That’s basically the whole show. Kudos to Emmanomia for this animation and for being able to see into the future apparently.
“WandaVision Animated Loops”
Last but not least is an animation that definitely needs more YouTube views. The video comes from YouTube channel WAFspr and it consists of a set of animated loops going through the various decades of the sitcoms in the show along with the different theme songs, costume changes and characters, such as Wanda and Vision’s twin sons Billy and Tommy and Wanda’s brother Pietro/Quicksilver. Again, it’s a simple idea but it works so well. Please go watch this and give it the views and likes it deserves.
Hopefully we will keep getting awesome fan-made content for WandaVision and the rest of the Marvel Disney Plus shows whilst we wait until it’s safe to go back to the cinema to see the Avengers on the big screen again.
